Verdict

Earth Planet won over C&D in June last year and has been taking on better opposition since. He should give a good account but lacks the scope of BRUSLINI, who won over this trip at Catterick last month and probably went off too quickly when tried in a handicap at Uttoxeter subsequently - he should find this smaller field easier to dominate. Paddy Whitelands is easy to ignore but Scotsbrook Cloud has proved a consistent sort on fast ground over hurdles over the last 12 months and Timmies Gone is a winning pointer.
